Allee Willis’ Kitsch O’ The Day – Super Bowl Sunday 1930′s Plastic Football On Bakelite Chain Necklace

football-necklace_2772

This little football choker is so delicate I only wear it once a year in honor of the Super Bowl which I pay no attention to other than hit a few parties where it’s always one of the most popular players in the room.

The footballs are stamped with the names of different colleges including Tulane, Notre Dame, Michigan, Purdue, Duke, Penn, Texas, Ohio, Army, Navy and Pitt.

Allee Willis’ Kitsch O’ The Day – Vintage Golf Ball Corkscrew

golf-corkscrew_1000

My favorite Sundays are when I entertain and this golf ball corkscrew has been held in the hands of almost every brunch guest who’s ever been over here. It’s as close as anyone will get to a golf course around here as the only use I have for golf balls and clubs are as bar accessories as seen here or as found objects in my art and sculptures. Like this series of Arnold Palmer Golf Hat & Coat Racks I made in 1987.

Allee Willis’ Kitsch O’ The Day – Bowling Ball And Pin Cup

Bowling-Ball-And-Pin-Cup_3002

I’m not a bowler but I love bowling artifacts and memorabilia. I’ve had bowling balls planted in my garden so they look like moon rocks for almost 30 years. I wear bowling shoes. I use bowling bags as purses. I don’t even need to comment on the beauty of bowling league shirts. And I enjoy a nice cup of vanilla with a hit of hazelnut decaf out of this ball every morning.

Allee Willis’ Kitsch O’ The Day – Billie Jean King “Queen Of Tennis” Sun Socks

billie-jean-king-socks_7476

These little socklets were made by Bonnie Doon in 1972 after Billie Jean won her fourth Wimbledon win and became the first female athlete to win $100,000 in a single year. Billie Jean was one of the first female athletes ever to stack up endorsement deals, the first being Alice Coachman, an African American who won a track and field gold medal in the 1948 Olympics and snagged a deal with Coca-Cola. 
I know I missed the Wimbledon Woman’s Finals by one day but I would have been remiss had I not featured the death defying peanut butter and bacon hot dog recipe yesterday for the 4th. These billie Jean sun socks soak up all the foot gunk produced pounding the court as well as all the toxins sweating out after an indulgent hot dog feast.
